Thoughts on Working with Armory and 2.8

Given that both Armory and 2.8 are in full swing with changes constantly happening how would you approach working in this environment. I plan on using the full armory SDK not the add-on, so does that mean I should wait for the Amory updates or is there a way to patch in the daily downloads of 2.8 into that file structure?

Or would the better system be to use the add-on in 2.8 and use the Github updater for Armory?
